The usability of knowledge based authentication methods on mobile devices
Mobile devices are providing ever increasing functionality to users, and the risks associated with applications storing personal details are high. Graphical authentication methods have been shown to provide better security in terms of password space than traditional approaches, as well as being more memorable. The usability of any system is important since an unusable system will often be avoided. This thesis aims to investigate graphical authentication methods based on recall, cued recall and recognition memory in terms of their usability and security.
